"Canada is a team that is progressing and that was evident when they beat USA". That they held No 2 Australia - the highest ranked team in the Olympic Test event they won three weeks ago - 2-2 is also to be noted.

Eight-time Olympic champions India are ranked five in the world while the Russians are placed 22 in the FIH world rankings.
